I have an evil streak and enjoyed watching you squirm. Sorry. I have explained before that we fostered teens on and off for many years and you have seen first hand that they tend to come and go. A few have really been special and took our hearts with them when they stepped in and out of our lives. They have always been our children just w/o the legal paperwork. Our intention was to adopt Rosa when she turned 18. That wish has had to be postponed a couple of times until now. We will be moving forward with her adoption and we couldn't be happier. What's even more exciting is the 3 little ones she brings with her. All we are doing is what legalizing what we already feel.
The kids are excited. Cyr recently asked my DH for an older sister and now she will have one. Their only reaction to it was to ask if she will get Dad's truck. That was their reaction when we explained their adoption, they get our stuff when we die and my van was not wanted like Dad's big truck.
